So I have an Onkyo TX-NR545, a bit of an old AVR šŸ˜… My issue is, in quiet scenes, or whenever there is no sound being produced by a movie/game/homescreen, it automatically cuts off the sound to my speakers, so when the characters start speaking I miss a...
  2. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    Can anyone help me figure out what is causing my receiver to constantly drop audio when streaming movies/shows? I had my 4K Firestick connected to my receiver for years without issues, except my Yamaha RX-V377 receiver is not HDCP 2.2 compliant, so I couldn't stream in 4K. I recently decided to...

    Hi all, I have ARC enabled on my TV and onkyo receiver. now when I turn on my TV, my receiver turns on automatically. I just want to use ARC when I'm watching netflix using the TV app and hearing the audio using the HDMI cable rather than the optical cable. I don't want the AVR to turn on...
  7. LCD Flat Panel Displays
    Hi all, what exactly is eARC or ARC on a TV. I read an article but I don't think it explained it well. Is it used when your audio source is the TV itself (ie: lets say you are watching Netflix) and you want the audio to go to your AVR? Right now I have an optical cable from my TV to my AVR...

    Hi all, I have a subwoofer in my family room that I'd like to bring to my basement once in a while when watching movies. I'd like to put it behind the couch to get more base and to feel it more and have it also act as a butt shaker. I'll need a 25 foot RCA and power cable. 20 feet would be...

  13. Speakers
    Recently my dad shoveled up some old GPX Speakers and a "Superwoofer". The HCD 9050 Soundsystem to be exact! My Idea was it to somehow connect them to my pc for better sound but I guess I need a receiver/amplifier for that. When I googled the original receiver it is selling for 100 bucks which...

    Hi all, I'm watching my movies by playing 4k remux files on my windows 10 PC and using Plex. My PC is connected to my Denon AVR which is powering my 7.1 speakers. What sounds better: 1) enabling the passthrough settings in Plex and letting my AVR do the decoding or 2) disabling the...

    Hello, It's been a long while since I last posted here. Thanks for reading. My question is whether anyone who owns a SONY Bravia X900F or X800E series running Android OS V. 9 Kernel 4.9.128, released in October last year, has experienced a problem with the TV holding the Audio Output setting...

    Hello, I have just set up a JBL SDP-25 for my Home Cinema system. When I plug in my Internet Provider TV box, I have proper video and audio through HDMI. So the SDP accepts and processes HDMI audio, as expected. However, when I plug in my Android box X96 Max or my old Apple TV through HDMI, I...
